Beer & Pretzels
Beer & Pretzels is one of Ted Alspach’s more light-hearted creations: a game of throwing beer mats around! Each player has a set of what are, effectively, beer mats. Players mark a target area with a loop of cord, take a step back and chuck their beer mats at the target. It's that simple – and great fun.
Then the tactics come into play. Most of the beer mats show a value. However, they only score if they end up inside the cord and aren't obscured by other beer mats. Aha! Land your mat on top of someone else's and reduce their score! What's more there are two special mats – a ‘x2’ and a blank napkin – that provide other tactical opportunities.
It's simple fun, with some neat tactical wrinkles, that requires a bit of dexterity. It's a great break-the-ice game or something to do while waiting for others to arrive.
